Tree Planting at Tolt MacDonald Park

When
Saturday, November 11 - 10am - 2pm
Event Type
Location
Tolt-MacDonald Park
Description

King County Parks and Recreation's 574-acre park sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley. A 500-foot suspension foot bridge crosses the Snoqualmie River and offers terrific views of the river and Cascade foothills. During the fall, you can observe spawning salmon in the river below and eagles and osprey soaring above.

The area that currently serves as Tolt-MacDonald Park was one of several large permanent wintering villages that the Snoqualmie Tribes occupied along the Tolt, Snoqualmie, and Raging Rivers, and continues to be an important cultural site and a focal point for the Snoqualmie Tribe's restoration program. Greenway volunteers will plant native trees and shrubs along the Tolt River to support restoration efforts led by the Snoqualmie Tribe and King County Parks and Recreation.
